From the start it was understood that transforming California State Parks could not only be an introspective exercise. Transformation would require an outside contingent of experts to vet ideas, provide outside perspective and input.
For the past 18 months, a dedicated set of volunteers made up of members from government, non-profit partners, business and academia with a passion for state parks has fulfilled that role. This committee, dubbed “Transformation Advisory Committee”, was formed to provide high-level guidance to the Transformation Team, including feedback on key work products.
The committee meets on a monthly basis to hear presentations by the Transformation Team members and various committee representatives on various projects. After each session, the committee is asked for comment such as for the focus of various initiatives, key findings, and draft recommendations and suggestions for engagement of external expertise and support.
While some of that input comes at the formal meetings, more comes in the days and weeks later when individual members call or write to the department to share ideas after giving consideration and thought to information presented to the committee. Members have been especially valuable in providing perspective on issues involving partnerships, relevancy and inclusion.
This dedicated group has been engaged and committed throughout the process. Their efforts have been invaluable in helping to shape the Transformation and set California State Parks on a measured and focused path for the future. The efforts of each Committee member are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
